My new favorite TV show these days is The Mentalist. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen it. It’s cute and funny, if not really the most intellectually stimulating show around, lol. But with Simon Baker and Tim Kang in it, who cares!
Australian actor Simon Baker plays Patrick Jain, a mentalist, working as a consultant for a homicide department in California. I’d never heard of a mentalist before but apparently it’s someone who can put together a psychological portrait and history of a person just by observing his or her behavior and appearance. He’s a lot like House and Sherlock Holmes in this way, but it’s always fun to watch.
Truthfully, these two men perfectly fit my visuals for Timmy and Basho in “Yin Yang” and possibly John and Toshi in His Beautiful Samurai and in Beautiful Samurai, White Tiger.
My boyfriend teases me when we watch this show. He observes my behavior and can deduce that I find these guys very attractive the way I squirm in my seat. He says to me, “You can’t decide which of these guys you like better.” Truth to tell, I kind of like Simon better. However, given my druthers, being an M/M author, I’d happily pair the two of them together. Whenever they have a scene where they’re standing near each other, I feel this way. In one scene, the two of them were arguing about something and inside I was begging, “Please, kiss!” That shows you how my evil mind works. lol
